The financial situation in Honduras has been critical for a long time and has worsened due to the pandemic. In addition, in November of 2020, Hurricane ETA hit Honduras, and not long after that Honduras was devastated by Hurricane IOTA.
For the past year, we have been able to distribute food to many families in desperate need living in Danli and remote communities such as Valle de Jamastrán, Santa Maria, Jutiapa, Chichimoral and Poteca that are part of the Deanery of El Paraiso overseen by Rev. Victor Velazquez who is the rector of Manos de Dios Episcopal Church.
Last week, we stayed closer to home in Danli and were able to help 50 families that have a child in our Manos Scholarship Program. Each basket contained beans, rice, sugar, coffee, butter, salt, pasta, flour, tomato sauce, toilet paper and soap.
We would like to thank for the generosity of many people that have been making donations for food distributions during the pandemic.
